Procrastination… An Artsy Thing???

Have you ever had a hard time getting started on a project?… even if it’s something you really like to do?… I have been asked to paint a chair for my son and his wife… It’s an Adirondack chair in shape… but, not wood like the older ones  … this one is a brightly colored plastic type… blue in color…

I’m not just going to paint it… I’m going to paint a beach scene  on it… The ocean… a sandy beach… palm trees … maybe a hammock  … a parrot   for sure … and a sign depicting Margaritaville

They want it to be fun… to sit by there pool… I have a few ideas… but, getting started is sometimes the hardest part… and then I get so involved I can’t stop until I’ve finished it completely… It’s all or nothing!… I went through all of my paints … to check what colors I have and what I will need… I might not even have to buy any…I had more than I thought

… A few new brushes might be good though… I let my Grandkids paint every time they come over… Something they love to do… So at times my brushes don’t get cleaned out as good as they should

  

… That’s OK… because the enjoyment they have is worth it… and I love to see their creativity  … I believe they might take after their Grandma… Isn’t that neat!… Oh, well… enough procrastination! … I think I’ll get the scene sketched out on the chair… and then I’ll have more incentive to paint this project… It will be fun!… I just needed a little pep talk to myself to get me started… Thanks for listening!

I finally have a rough sketch… Believe it or not this helps…

PS…Do you think that we all have a little trouble with the time being just right to begin an art project… Is it an artsy thing?… I always seem to say,

“I have to be in the right mood!”

… Just wondering what you might think…
